WELCOME


Porsches in Shenandoah Valley The Shenandoah Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) is dedicated to enjoying Porsche cars in central Virginia. While Porsches are the common element, our members provide the club with variety and enthusiasm. We organize scenic driving tours, run six autocrosses each year, and take part in high-performance driver's education (DE) events at the Virginia International Raceway and other tracks. Our premier event is the Richmond Porsche Meet (RPM), a June weekend including a concours, lunch, driving tour, tech session, banquet, and an autocross at the Southside Speedway. We also hold a Christmas party and several other social meetings annually.

Nonmembers are welcome to participate in a social meeting, a driving tour, or an autocross. Learn more about the Shenandoah Region PCA and our upcoming events, the PCA Zone 2 comprising 10 nearby regions, the national PCA, and how to JOIN PCA.

UPCOMING EVENTS



Dream Lake in the Luray Caverns
Shenandoah's Tour to Luray Caverns:

Join the Shenandoah Region PCA on Saturday, August 26 for a driving tour to Luray Caverns over the Blue Ridge mountains and through the scenic Page Valley.

We will rally at the far end of the Walmart parking lot in Ruckersville at 9:30 AM and depart at 10 AM to take the beautiful Spotswood Trail (Virginia Route 33) to the western foot of the mountain at Swift Run gap. From there we will turn right and not traverse a "main" road again until we arrive at the Luray Caverns parking lot. Our route will take us though curve after curve after curve.

We will end our journey at the Luray Caverns parking lot in Luray, VA, where there are so many things to do for both young (kids) and younger (adults). The caverns are a comfortable 55 degrees and are amazing! There is a car and carriage museum and much, much, more. Visit their website for all the attractions.

Luray has some great shops and restaurants. The Blue Ridge Parkway, New Market battlefields, and Sperryville are a very fun drive just minutes away. Numerous overnight options, ranging from moderately priced motels to the elegant Mimslyn Inn are available. What better way could there be to rejoice in Porsches and Virginia?

Our Tour will be held rain or shine. Severe weather will cancel. In case of cancellation, information will be posted here.
